Fun and Funky (Episode #301H)

KQED Life: Sun, Mar 31, 2013 -- 1:00 PM

A Mom Who Walks On Water - As a teen, Karen Putz lost her hearing while barefoot water skiing. More than 25 years passed, but her desire to get back on her feet kept burning within. Some family members told her she was too old. But Karen had rediscovered her passion. Keep on Rocking - Meet the Bats, a popular Kentucky group that regularly sells out its gigs and always leaves the audience laughing. See why they're inspired to keep on rocking the stage, even if they still have day jobs. This WASP Still Stings - Betty Wall Strohfus was one of a handful of female pilots in World War II. After the war, she thought that part of her life was over. She was in her 70s when she felt compelled to honor her fellow WASPs by telling her story. Now at 91, she's more proud and passionate than ever, and she's one of the feistiest people you'll ever meet!

Pursuit of Passion (Episode #213H)

KQED Life: Sun, Mar 24, 2013 -- 1:00 PM

The Purpose and Beauty of Birds of Prey - They are two of the most under-appreciated groups around -- birds of prey and the people who dedicate their lives to helping them. Find out what made Carol McCorkle and her husband change careers to educate us on the plight of raptors, and see how their Avian Reconditioning Center has become a big part of their outreach. The Power of Persistence - It's the definitive American success story. See a need, fill it and make millions. Of course, it's never that easy. But it can be done. Patrick Gottsch is living proof. Eight years of having doors slammed in his face didn't keep this former farmer from building a global media network. The Sky's the Limit - What would you do if you had all the money in the world and a whole lifetime to spend it? Kermit Weeks realized early on that for him, the sky's the limit. Literally. He now owns the largest private airplane collection in the world. But it wasn't until recently that he realized the planes were just a vehicle to help him reach his true destiny.
